Curious about buying Hyatt

I'm considering purchasing a week at a Hyatt. My thought would be to purchase a week worth around 1800 points at a property with low MFs, and then use those points to trade into other Hyatt properties. My schedule and destinations can be extremely flexible, so I can turn my purchase into multiple low demand weeks. The Hyatt program seems fairly clearly laid out to me, and the Hyatts I have been to tend to be high quality properties.

Am i missing anything with this approach? Is it challenging to get find availability in the low point weeks? Is there another program where I can do the same thing at a better value?

I was also considering "renting" a current owners week and then playing around with the points on my own for a year to see if I still want to buy. Is that something that is doable?

Thanks in advance!

Hyatt Pinon Pointe, Hyatt Beach House, Westin Kierland
We bought our first Hyatt week at Pinon Pointe for those very same reasons and have been extremely happy. We ended up with 5 weeks of vacation time from 2,000 points. We stayed in studios, 1 bedrooms and even 2 bedrooms and traded within the Hyatt system for all of them. We only spent 2 days at Pinon Pointe. We were so happy we decided to buy an additional week but first researched other time shares. We ended up deciding on another Hyatt as there was no way to expand to that many nights in any other system we looked into. We also love the quality of Hyatt. I think you would be very satisfied.
